    Thanks, I almost agree. Setback is pretty awesome too.:soapbox:

    But yes, it is interesting to see how everyone progresses. I've surprised myself with this one.

    I've seen that mentioned before... Noob question is, how or where do I clip the card? Does it go on the spoke? I'm thinking a clothespin won't fit the stay.

    Used to use the stays, but you get the idea.

    I love it! I too haven't heard that sound in years. I remember that we would put multiple cards on our bikes. All depended on how many cards we could find or buy, since they were usually baseball cards and how many clothes pins we could sneak out of moms laundry bag! At least all the parents in the neighborhood knew where all the kids were! Haha

    Went for a ride to get final shots for finished thread.
    Did about two miles round trip, about halfway to my LBS I heard a crack.
    I figured it might be the seat pan, but kept going. Then another crack. Yup, it was the seat pan.
    Luckily it's not a structural issue, it just had to find its natural place on the bike.

    I also learned this thing is best for simple cruising, going downhill is a disaster waiting to happen.

    I just realized I haven't ridden this thing for a long time. I think I'll dig it out of the corner tomorrow.

    This bike is going to undergo a transformation, I've been thinking the past week about building my cousin Steven a custom trike.
    Today, I found out his trike was stolen.

    So, since I'm off work Friday; I'm going to try a one day trike conversion. Hopefully, I'll be able to get Steve a new ride by Friday evening..... Stay tuned.

    Called my aunt today, found out Steven can't balance well enough to step over a men's frame. He needs a step through.

    I need a plan B.
